剧情

克莱尔·邓菲(Claire Dunphy朱丽·鲍温饰)催促家人赶快动身前去父亲杰伊·普里切特(Jay Pritchett艾德·奥尼尔饰)家里给自己的“弟弟”曼尼(Manny里克·罗德里格兹饰)庆祝生日,结果她和老公菲尔莫明其妙地就开始比赛看谁能先赶到目的地。于是夫妻俩分别开车上路,两个女儿亚历克斯(Alex阿芮尔·温特饰)和海莉(Haley萨拉·海蓝德饰)坐爸爸的车,小儿子卢克(Luke)坐妈妈的车。卢克在车上问克莱尔为啥要和爸爸“分开”,原来他把两人“分别开车”理解成了“分开”。然后克莱尔得知原来儿子想要坐爸爸的车,她感到有些生气,于是停下车来和卢克“理论”,结果越说越显得自己可悲。不过在卢克表示妈妈选的路线会比爸爸更快后,争强好胜的克莱尔马上就开心起来。菲尔则在车上试图说服两个女儿这样的比赛并不是浪费时间,结果车在路上抛锚了,修好车后,海莉和亚历克斯告诉爸爸她们都不想去参加那个聚会。菲尔居然难过得哭了起来,两个女儿慌了于是也跟着哭了起来。这样的插曲让菲尔失去了打败克莱尔的动力,不过最终女儿们还是成功说服他又鼓起了勇气。

与此同时,同性情侣米歇尔·普里切特(Mitchell Pritchett杰西·泰勒·弗格森英语Jesse Tyler Ferguson饰)和卡梅伦·塔克(Cameron Tucker艾瑞克·斯通斯崔特饰)来到一家超市给曼尼选礼物。虽然米歇尔表示他们快要迟到,但卡梅伦还是停下来帮一位叫唐纳德的老人说服一位老妇人带他回家,他一开始很为自己的“善举”感到高兴,只是后来发现唐纳德和那位老妇人不是夫妻,而是在发展婚外情。卡梅伦和米歇尔开始进行争论,不过说着说着米歇尔突然加入到一群快闪族中跳舞,他本以为这可以给卡梅伦一个惊喜,但后者反倒觉得米歇尔故意把这样的事情瞒着自己而生气,之后到了车上两人又吵了起来。

格罗丽娅·德尔加多-普里切特(Gloria Delgado-Pritchett索菲娅·维加拉饰)和杰伊·普里切特就前者丢三落四的问题发生了争执,这一次是弄丢了钥匙。杰伊一开始深信自己的批评是有道理的,结果却发现老婆的钥匙就在自己口袋里,他不好意思承认,于是把钥匙放到了格罗丽娅的包里。杰伊告诉继子曼尼,他的行为表现很成熟,从来都不像是个小孩子,这让曼尼感到很郁闷,他就想像个孩子一样生活,而不是现在就生活在恶作剧电话英语Prank call和混合饮料的聚会中。他打开自己以前的圣诞节礼物,把一个飘浮设备放进游泳池中。格罗丽娅对儿子不去参加自己的生日聚会感到生气,于是用儿子的BB弹朝飘浮设备射击。到了车上,杰伊终于向格罗丽娅坦白钥匙的事情,后者自然更是生气,特别是她一开始还满为错怪了老公而自责。三个家庭的成员最后都到达了餐馆给曼尼过生日,曼尼于是作出一番演讲,表示自己决定以后都不再表现得像个孩子了,因为所有比他年长的亲人都还是像个孩子。

The episode was originally titled "Dash, Flash, Crash" in the original press release,[1] the episode's title was later formally changed to "Manny Get Your Gun".[2] Part of the episode's plot is based on Steven Levitan's personal experience.

评价

The episode received overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics. Joel Keller of AOL's TV Squad called the episode "one of the better ones of the season". Despite this, he felt that the Mitch and Cam storyline while "funny" it was "not as funny as they usually are" He also commented that "It's just that sometimes Cam is too much Cam for his, or the audience's, own good."[2] The A.V. Club's Donna Bowman gave the episode an A- rating. She felt "this episode is a bit less than the sum of its parts; or maybe the jigsaw pieces have been forced into place a little too emphatically."[15] Rachel Maddux of New York gave the episode a positive review. She felt that the episode brought the series "out of [its] slump" and also commented "This kind of episode is pretty much why we started loving this show in the first place".[16]

Kara Klenk of TV Guide called it "another great episode."[17] Matt Roush called the episode "comic gold" and felt the episode was "firing on all cylinders".[18] James Poniewozik of Time gave the episode a positive review. He felt that "This episode may not quite have reached the level of "Fizbo", but by the time it built to its near-four-car-pileup, it had strung together quite a run of funny and sweet moments."[19] HitFix writer Alan Sepinwall, who is often critical of the series's second season praised the episode commenting that "nearly everything was clicking".[20] He also positively compared it to a season one episode of the series when "where everything came together at the end in the style of the strongest season one episodes ".[20]
